Israel-based startup Opsys Tech has built a powerful lidar system that combines the low cost, robustness, and pure solid-state advantages of flash lidar with the range and resolution of scanning lidar all in one: Scanning Microflash Lidar.
“Our solid-state Scanning Microflash Lidar technology is highly efficient, with a scalable cost structure enabling the best value for users,” said Rafi Harel, Opsys Tech CEO. “We provide high performance alongside a flexible system installation and a scalable field of view.”
Opsys Tech’s lidar system enables the use of multiple sensors in a single lidar system, providing an integrated single 4D point cloud with a flexible field of view. This allows automotive manufacturers, Tier 1 suppliers, and virtual dedicated server (VDS) suppliers customizable field-of-view configurations for a variety of uses.
Its patented multi-wavelength technology enables multiple sensors to operate without interference, while maximizing scan rate and eliminating dead zones from the field of view. A control unit then integrates the data from all base sensors to deliver a single 4D point cloud.
Dividing the field of view into 1,000-times-smaller segments than flash lidar, the sensor maximizes lidar’s power density to capture a greater range while operating under the FDA Class 1 eye-safety limit.
Opsys Tech uses high-density detector arrays coupled with high-density, fully addressable two-dimensional VCSEL arrays (thousands of tiny, pre-focused, semiconductor-based laser arrays) to deliver the resolution, range and scan rate the autonomous-vehicle industry needs.
Opsys Tech Scanning Microflash Lidar’s ultra-fast scan rate enables multiple measurements per pixel while delivering an unrivaled 30 hertz scan rate for the full field of view under all conditions. Further, the semiconductor-based structure of Opsys Tech’s system enables full performance and reliability over a wide range of temperatures and automotive conditions.
Benefits of Opsys Tech Scanning Microflash Lidar:
Pure solid state (no moving parts) means high durability
200-meter range (surpasses flash lidar's 50-meter range while maintaining eye safety)
Scans full field of view at 1,000 frames per second
System averages inputs to operate on 30 frames per second (Averaging inputs eliminates errors caused by interference)
Customizable, multi-wavelength system (this allows clients to customize the field of view to their needs by integrated multiple units without creating interference between transmitters)
Low-cost (silicon semiconductor-based VCSEL lasers and SPAD receivers)
